This was the second time we've stayed at Pounamu Apartments and we love it. We stayed with another young couple in a two bedroom apartment. The apartments are very nice and have fantastic views over the lake and mountain. We prefer the ground floor apartments as they are a little more spacious than the second level apartments with balcony's -... More

Pros - great views, well-heated, well equipped, good beds. Easy check-in and friendly staff. Really clean. Good DVD range. Underground parking and ski locker. Eco-friendly. Cons- -Noise from road and from the neighbours in the apartment above kept us awake in the front room. Mind you this was school holidays so admittedly a very busy time. -Beds overly heated. Seems...

Amazing family holiday. Beautiful apartments, good undercover parking, great hot tub, friendly staff and great views. Was located 10 min walk to town down a hill so we taxi home sometimes to avoid the hill.

the apartment was great, clean with great views. The service was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed for 3 nights and we would definitively book again . The apartment was very close to the centre of town with easy access either by car or walking. Thanks !!

We were a party of one couple and two female friends and had pre-booked our Pounamu Apartment....it was FABULOUS! The apartment was cleverly laid out....there was a door that WOULD have isolated the double bedded part from the twin bedded part and given each total privacy! Clever! The apartment had the most wonderful views over Lake Wakatipu...through floor to ceiling... More

I booked Pounamu apartments on the basis of previous trip advisor reviews - I was not disappointed. Staff were helpful before arrival giving great advice for restaurants and suggestions on things to book for our short stay. The check in was swift, friendly and easy. The two bed apartment we booked had a wow factor with the view and quality... More

I recently stayed here on a trip to Queenstown. The accommodation was perfect! Beautiful view and fire. The private book able spa looking at the lake was also a highlight! Would also be great for a family. An easy 10 minute walk to town. Will definitely be back!!

Our apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, warm & well-equipped, with a fantastic view of the lake. The staff were incredibly friendly & helpful. We booked activities and mountain transport through them, which was very easy & and we had no problems at all. It's a 10-15 min walk into town, but mountain transport buses stop right outside the apartments. Would... More

I have stayed in a number of places in Queenstown over the last few years. There is always a balance between location, cost, view, and hotel standard. I think putting all of these factors together this is probably the best choice I have made so far. I had booked a studio room, but as the weather wasn't great and I... More

Very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the "Pet Friendly" unit with our family dog. There was a dog bed and dog bowls waiting when we arrived and a yard for him to run around in. The apartments work well with beautiful view of the lake and well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms and very warm. I will definitely stay here... More
